Anything that can be worn or used in multiple ways, instantly has all my attention. Creativity has been at the heart of Swatch and this new Pop Swatch collection reinstates this ideology. Bringing back a trend that was loved by one and all in the 90's these watches have been upgraded with a modern twist! The watch is extremely versatile and can be worn in many different ways : as a wrist watch,  as a pocket watch, as a wall clock, as a pendant with a metal chain or even as a table clock. All you have to do is pop out the dial jacket, take out the dial and let your imagination run wild! You can even interchange the straps and dials, giving the watches a personal spin and letting you change your style, every time you decide to flaunt them. 

I personally loved the black and white collection but if you're a colour lover, this collection is something that will make your mind spin. From bright oranges, reds, blues to pinks, it's a playground for anyone who loves a dose of colour. Minimalistic yet striking, each watch has a round dial that works ideally for both men and women! I had an amazing time going through these and learning so much more about these at the launch which took place at St. Regis Hotel, Mumbai, last week. You can check out the new collection at various store across the city and I am in fact going to be giving one away on my Snap chat next week! So make sure you're following me there.

When it comes to the scorching summer months, my water and fruit intake is at it's peak but my makeup tends to be reduced to the bare minimum and is comprised of anything and everything long lasting! As the temperatures soar, I gravitate towards a more natural look which is easy to maintain and works like a charm with every outfit too. I tend to stick to 4 or 5 basic steps which includes a light weight foundation, a sheer illuminating powder, the new long-wear brow gel from Bobbi Brown, a waterproof mascara and slight tinge of colour of my lips. I've been so surprised by the stay power of the new brow gel and being someone who is so obsessed with doing her brows, this product is a new favourite! On the days that I'm feeling a bit fancier and have a few extra minutes to spare, I'll use a matte bronzer like the Bobbi Brown bronzer in the shade Stonestreet, to add some definition to my face and then highlight using my brick highlighter before I'm ready to face the day!

But today's look was created using some of Masoom's favourite products from the new Bobbi Brown Beach Nudes range. We spent a fun day by the beach, catching up in between our manic schedules, talking about everything from work to fashion to sharing our favourite summer beauty hacks while sipping on some fresh lemonade. She started with the Nude Finish Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15 for my base. She insisted, "It's almost criminal to walk out of our bedrooms in this sweltering heat with out a moisturizer laden with SPF. I swear by this product because its a mega multi-tasker that hydrates the skin, protects it from the harsh heat and silently covers any redness or discoloration one might have!" I couldn't agree more and was glad to be introduced to this sos product! She then moved on to talking about the Nude Finish Illuminating Powder which is currently riding high up on her favorite's list! "Summer is stuffed with days where you want to laze at the beach or unwind by the pool on your holiday and you just can't be arsed with any make up at all! Swipe on this powder and let everyone believe it's your natural glow from all the time riding the waves", she exclaimed!

To add some sheer tinge of colour to my lips she chose the new Sheer Lip Colour in natural shade. "The deal-maker with this product is that it is packed with natural butters and oils which makes this super moisturizing! I use these sheer lip colours as the last step to finish my 'no makeup' makeup look." I was nodding my head in unison because I've had mine in the shade Boho Bronze, settled in my handbag for over a month! It's the one lip colour that I can swipe on without looking in the mirror, in the middle of my day which would add an instant freshness to my look! I was ecstatic with her favourite natural make up look that she portrayed through me & am probably going to sticking to this for the rest for the summer! If you guys would like to see my favourite products for summer & why I swear by them, head over to Masoom's blog to take a peek!

Stripes for me, are reminiscent of summer. The nautical vibe reminds me of just sailing away in the ocean as the glorious summer sun shines above your head, turning your skin two shades darker and your hair one shade lighter. There is absolutely nothing about this feeling that I would like to change. Which is exactly why I love donning some stripical pieces to mentally take me to the place I'd like to be at while making me look stylish as well. Besides being an easy print to pair and carry off, it some how also makes your outfit look a bit more put together, which for me is a big load off my shoulders. For this month's Only look, I wanted to don stripes but the task at hand was to do it in a slightly unusual way. You can obviously go for a simple stripped tee or dress or skirt and call it a day but yours truly was determined to give this classic trend a spin.

I was pretty sure that I wanted to experiment with the stripes on stripes look but of course, without resembling a criminal. It can be a tricky situation in terms of whether you should match the colours, the size of the stripes or use contrast colours? This one image that has been doing the rounds for a few years now, definitely stayed in the back of mind and gave me that confidence to think this look through. To begin with, I chose my two key stripe pieces and then to break things up, I decided to throw on this shirt dress in a gorgeous khaki colour. You can use a shirt dress in so many different ways by either opening all the buttons up and using it like a light jacket or by open the buttons half way up and using it as one of the most trendy piece this season, the maxi top. I loved how the shirt dress, exposed the stripped skirt, helping me fluently achieve that stripes or stripes look. What do you guys think of this look?
